Never Enough Wool
Happy summer! Well, if it ever stops raining that is. Here at the wool shop we have an answer to those dreary rainy, grey days – pretty colours of wool and cotton! Not to mention our newest activity – Wool Shop Bingo! Stop by to pick up your bingo card – every bingo you complete will result in an entry into the grand prize drawing to be held on October 1 – a sweater’s quantity of wool! (Some restrictions apply, see rules list on bingo card!)
In other news, we have
received another shipment of Classic Elite Liberty Wool Prints! The colours are glorious, and we have
pattern ideas! The even better news is
that they coordinate nicely with the solids from the Liberty Wool line, so you
can mix and match for best effect.
Another new yarn that has arrived is King Cole Drifter. This is a self-patterning cotton/acrylic blend that is fabulous for soft baby projects. We have all six colours so that you can decide which one you like best.
Remember when we brought in the Katia Amigurumi packages? 10 small balls of dk-weight cotton for only $15? We discovered that these packages contain the perfect amount of yarn to make a Baby Surprise Jacket and Hat for the newest wee one in your life. Stop by to see how adorable the project is!
We also got a restock on the Manos del Uruguay Alegria wool in some amazing tonal colours. These will be perfect for our shawl class in September, providing they stay that long!
For the month of July, we typically do not offer classes, but continue to host knitting/crochet times during class hours. This year we are going to try something new and different, based on requests from our customers for some very specialized classes. These will be 1-2 hour classes covering a specific technique, at a cost of $5 per class. We will offer one topic on Tuesday afternoon and another topic on Tuesday evening. The complete list is in the classes section.
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for your class before class time. Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm. Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons. Our next class session is July 10, at 10:30 am. The plan will be to meet and start the panel in question and then for homework, finish the panel to be ready for the next month. There are ten colour panels, a class to discuss seaming, and another class to discuss the borders. Cost is $25, plus materials and book.
Trinity Stitch Variation Cowl—This little number features a moebius twist and a brand new (for us) stitch technique. This cowl uses worsted weight or dk weight yarn. Get a head start on gifts for **THAT** holiday or maybe just make a beautiful treat for yourself! August’s class is $25 plus materials.
In The Pink Shawl – September class is a shawl that uses a simple yarn-over technique to great effect! Wow all your friends with this stylish yet simple project! Cost is $25 plus materials ( approximately 2 skeins of your favourite sock weight yarn)
